Vince Barnett Overview:

Character actor, Vince Barnett, was born on Jul 4, 1902 in Pittsburgh, PA. Barnett died at the age of 75 on Aug 10, 1977 in Encino, CA .


Short, jaunty, bald, fast-talking American actor with rolling, watery eyes and wispy moustache, who played runts, weasels, and whining Runyonesque gangsters, often in comic vein. One of life's losers on screen, but a well-liked and ubiquitous figure off it as an inveterate wisecracker and practical joker. In his twenties, Barnett was an airmail pilot who pioneered trans-American routes.
